There are various ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you may forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have two very similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the website visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
